"I'VE NEVER BEEN ON A VLOG!" πŸ˜‚ WAIT for it at the end!!
.....
.....
One of my goals for this year is to push myself as a creative. 🎨 I randomly took some video the past few months and it's just been sitting on my computer. πŸŽ₯ I decided to make a little vlog with it and share that teaser with you!!! It's somewhat random but still fun! My YouTube channel can be found via the link in my bio under "Adventure Vlogs" #bridoesmontana

TELL ME: Would you prefer
βœ” Everyday life videos OR
βœ” Videos when I go on cool adventures such as camping, hiking, road trips?

WATER OF THE GODS! πŸ’¦ Tonight we washed away our troubles with acoustic rock and artisan springs.
.....

I can't say what best friends are made of, hell, lately I feel unequipped to tell anyone anything. But what I can tell you is what works for me, and that's her. Shayna has been my best friend for almost 15 years, very few things in my life have ever made it past 5. She isn't perfect and neither am I. But we have an understanding; we don't always agree and I do believe maybe 3 or 4 times in past 15 years we have had fights I wasn't sure we could survive. But somehow we always do.
.....
.....
Tonight we talked about the past few months, both us feeling lost and confused. "I don't remember having us this much bad karma!", she said as I nod and replied, "After this we will be able to survive anything. Washer breaks? Hell, pop a bottle of champagne!" We both laugh.
.....
.....
I don't know much, although lately I feel closer to figuring it out if it all works outγ€Šps can you say a little prayer and send good vibes my way?!》, but what I can tell you is that if you find one person to weather the storm with, one person where you can complain and she can complain, having two different conversations successfully at the same time, then you will have succeeded farther in life than you will ever know. #bridoesmontana

IT SNOWED ON US! πŸ˜±β„
.....
.....
Have you ever gone hiking πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ in June and become completely covered in giant snow flakes?! 🌨 How about floating in July only to have it snow the next day? If your answer is "yes" you must have been to Montana at least once! πŸ’™

My little/best friend from pharmacy school πŸ’Š - I am in a fraternity - came to visit last weekend. Saturday we went to baseball games (her boyfriend is a coach), grabbed a few brews, ate sushi 🍣, then went home and sit some back patio sitting.
.....
.....
Sunday we went hiking and of course it SNOWED! I had been wanting to hike to πŸ„ Fairy Lake (comment a πŸ§šβ€β™€οΈ if you've been) so we headed up, an hour in it sprinkled small flakes on us, but decided we had to do the 3 mile hike considering we drove πŸš— that far.... So we threw on a hoodie, jacket, and gloves, and hit the trail.

🐻 Bear spray in hand, I finally turned on loud music 🎢 to scare away the mountain lion that I truly do believe was stalking us. Weather there is no such thing as a lost cause in nature; although it was snowy and windy at the top, the views, as you can see, were 100% worth it. ❀#bridoesmontana

"It seems that the more places I see and experience, the bigger I realize the world to be. The more I become aware of, the more I realize how relatively little I know of it, how many places I have still to go, how much more there is to learn. Maybe that's enlightenment enough - to know that there is no final resting place of the mind, no moment of smug clarity. Perhaps wisdom, at least for me, means realizing how small I am, and unwise, and how far I have yet to go." - Anthony Bourdain. #bridoesspain

"She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines. She was beautiful, for the way she thought. She was beautiful, for the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful, for her ability to make other people smile, even if she was sad. No, she wasn't beautiful for something as temporary as her looks. She was beautiful, deep down to her soul. She is beautiful." #bridoesmontana .....

Life is better at the LAKE! Anyone else agree?! πŸš£β€β™€οΈ
.....

There truly is something magically about #lakelife. β›΅ I still don't have it figured out but I told myself I would never live in an area without mountains β›° and/or water.πŸ’§ I've been blessed enough that every town I've lived thus far has had a river running through it - BONUS! And yes one of those towns was actually the town the movie #ariverrunsthroughit was based in! Even cooler! ❀

DO YOU LIKE WINE?! 🍷
β€’
My amazing friend and fellow photographer πŸ“Έ extraordinaire @ess_effect and her man are opening a tasting room 🏠 called BLEND! It will be open hopefully this spring/summer in downtown Bozeman. Stay tuned! πŸ“» I am so excited because everyone will be able to enjoy amazing wine from @valo_cellars, also owned by them!
β€’
I have tasted both their chardonnay and merlot and fell in love. ❀ I am NOT a huge fan of white wines so I was so surprised when I not only loved the chardonnay but craved 5 more bottles. 🍾 If you are in or around the Bozeman area make sure you follow @valo_cellars for updates!
β€’
πŸŽ‰ I will covering their opening. I asked them, it wasn't hard because Sonia is already in the know about what the cool kids do these days, to create an "Instagramable" location 🎈 in the tasting room - aka an awesome area primed for photo opportunities - and I cannot wait to see it!
β€’
Their website can we found at www.valocellars.com.

NEW BLOG POST(s)! β›°
β€’
I know that I have been the worst about blogging lately but I've felt so unmotivated. πŸ’©A lot of you who know me personally know the struggles that I'm currently going through ✈ but for those of you on here: I'm trying to figure out the next step in my life... πŸ’Š which can be really tricky when you literally have nothing pulling you in any direction.
β€’
My friend and I decided to hike for a sunrise 🌞 and ended up finding a moody sunrise instead of a sunny one but the photos πŸ“Έ are still absolutely stunning. β€’
☝️ Head to the link in my bio and click on "BLOG". If you haven't been in a while, I have posted a few times this week so catch up! πŸ˜‰ because I am trying to catch up on all the photos that I've been taking. I am trying to get to a starting point because I have something super excited coming... "ah what could it be?!", they say. ❀ Keep watching!
β€’
I wish 🌟 that I could say I'm one of those people who would promise you more consistency on my blog, a MWF schedule, but let's be honest... the only thing I ever do consistently every day is wake up. πŸ˜‚ I've never been good at routines. The best that I can do is post blog post here for you! But if you want go to the link in my bio (again?!) and subscribe. βœ” I only send out monthly emails with updates of what I've blogged about the past month. I am an type A inbox freak and hate frequent emails! πŸ“·: @ess_effect #bridoesmontana

I HATED YELLOWSTONE!
β€’
Okay that is not 100% true but growing up in Montana I never knew what the obsession was about.⁉️ People always freaked out about Yellowstone and I thought Glacier, Europe, and about half of the rest of the world 🌍 was WAY cooler. But on my recent trip through the park, number 1/60 #bridoesthenationalparks!, I saw the beauty.
β€’
The amazing and unique wildlife 🐺, the vast amount of land unexplored, the stinky πŸ’© smells of the geysers; the beauty of the colors of the water, each color different depending on the lifeforms, the temperature 🌑. There is SO much to be seen in Yellowstone and I've barely scratched the surface.
β€’
I know life is about choices, but I look at the world around me, the vastness, the time ⏰ it would take to see it all, and I'm just not ready. I'm not ready to settle down, have kidsπŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§, or work the 9-5. 🏨 I'm not sure how I'll get there or what the next year of my life will look like but I am planning for it to be pretty d*mn epic!! #bridoesyellowstone #bridoeswyoming

"When people look at my pictures I want them to feel the way they do when they want to read a line of a poem twice." #robertfrank
β€’
Lately I've been thinking long and hard about what I want my blog, my Instagram, my photos, my legacy, to be. I've heard photographers πŸ“Έ say things like "take pictures of moments, not things" or "tell a story πŸ“š with your photo". Even still to this day I sometimes look at photos I take and feel underwhelmed, like there is no deeper meaning, no deeper content.🎭 For the longest time I fought what I liked and tried to photograph & blog about things that I wasn't too passionate about: fashion πŸ‘—, indoor photography, flat lays, and even to some extent animals 🦊 and landscape. Time and time again I come back to one thing, one thing that inspires me, that incite emotions, that moves me years later, and that one thing is PEOPLE. It's people laughing, smiling, crying. ❀ Moments to me are good times and memories spent with friends.πŸ€Έβ€β™‚οΈ
β€’
I don't quite know exactly how to tell a story with a photo, except to accompany each photo with a story ✏, but it's my goal for this summer 🌞, no matter how good or bad, I just want my photos to instead matter. 🌱 #bridoesmontana

We may not have won the @wowairlines contest but I do believe we gained something else.
β€’
Honestly I had never woken up at 5 in the morning to hike yet it was one of the most enjoyable experiences of my life. As it kept getting brighter and lighter I kept wishing that time would stand still so I could enjoy every second.
β€’
I still haven't figured out the secret to life; my 20s were made for finding myself and my 30s for finding happiness. But I do believe if infinite bliss were ever to be found it would be in nature.
β€’
I've never knew how outdoorsy I was until this winter when, 30 degrees be damned, I suited up and hit the snow covered trails. I am SO excited for all of the outdoor adventures to come and even more excited about the photos, videos, and stories I will be able to share. I already have an epic fall trip planned, 58 National Parks left, and endless cities and countries on the list! πŸ“·: @ess_effect & no it's not Photoshopped! #bridoesmontana

TELL ME: have you ever done a sunrise or sunset hike?!
